Men and women experience different sensations when they hug. The sensations they have in common are feelings of physical warmth and relational attachment. It meets our deep need for connection.
Ask your sweetheart if you can practice hugging them.
- Try embraces of differing durations.
- See what a side-by-side, one-arm hug feels like.
- Stand behind your sweetheart, reach around their waist with both arms and gently squeeze.
- Test hugging with your eyes opened and closed.
Don’t try to escalate these moments into anything beyond a hug. Simply enjoy the moments of touch and feel the intimacy of romancing your sweetheart.
